It's more about a lifestyle change than losing lots of weight quickly.

Changing your lifestyle to eat mindfully and healthfully and incorporating exercise in your daily routine is the best path for most people.

You are putting down too many facts...... I have to believe everything is exactly like you explained.....

However, this days I am eating more then 50 carbs a day and my lipid panels are great, and I keep on with my weight bh.

I haven't done the research myself and you have no real reason to trust me. But I have learned nutritional biochemistry from several prominent and reputable researchers/professors in the field.
Hatzlacha with your diet. I dont want to discredit what works for you. If you keep yourself regularly informed on your health status you should be fine.

I just want to point out that there is so much misinformation out there regarding health and nutrition that it is so hard for people to make sense of all the information. Additionally, there are many people that consider themselves nutrition experts and advise others on diets and health, yet have no credentials.
Basically, be careful where you get your information from, use your seichel, and take everything with a grain of salt. And when reading studies that were published in journals make sure they were peer reviewed, check the populations that were studied and check the experimental design - many studies have significant flaws that are ignored by the media.

A low carb diet works based on the fact that a person becomes ketotic. Ketone bodies are produced from fatty acids as a fuel for the brain. Normally the brain would use glucose as a fuel, however when a person is on a low-carb diet, glucose becomes rare and fatty acids are used to conserve the glucose for glycolytic tissues (tissues that can only use glucose as a fuel).

However this only works if a person is really on a low carb diet (ie: less than 50 g per day - obviously this will be different from person to person).
So if a person follows a low-carb diet correctly there is nothing wrong with it - it causes calorie restriction - since a person can only eat so much high fat and high protein foods (you become really nauseous if eat too much). If a person is calorie restricted, eating a diet high in saturated fat is not a problem because you can clear the lipid and have a healthy lipid profile.

However, it is extremely difficult to maintain such a low carb intake. The problems start happening when a person lets their carb intake rise slightly. Most people on low carb diets consume more than 50 g of carbs per day - their intake is still low (say under 150 grams a day) but not low enough. (Normal carb intake is 250-300 grams per day)

Once a person is eating more carbs, they are no longer calorie restricted and they no longer have the ketotic effect (since they are getting enough glucose for the brain so the brain doesnt need ketone bodies any longer). If a person keeps up the high fat intake this can cause them to develop an awful lipid profile.

Its all about how many calories come in vs how many go out.
If you take in more than you burn, you are fat. Less, you skinny.
Diets are a scam. Just stop eating so many calories, that's all there is to it.

The equation is more like this:
calories in = calories out + storage

Overweight is a symptom, not a problem.

Excess visceral fat (which is what men tend to have), can cause real health problems.

BS, BS, BS, Its all what the Corrupted Federal agencies say, do a simple Google search And you will see what the real studies have to say.

I know Many people that went on this diet and their lipid panel are great including mine. ill post a pic soon of the results if ill have a chance.

It depends if someone stays on the low-carb part of the diet. Carb intake has to really be low in order for diet to work (in order to keep calorie intake down, and to keep ketotic effect in place).

I am on Low Carb high fat/protien diet. Best diet ever.

BTW many people on this diet develop a terrible lipid profile - just something to be aware of....

What kind of meals do you eat?
I'm sort of convinced that you lose weight on that because there are so few snacks and you rarely feel fully satisfied.

This diet generally works because its impossible to consume excess calories when on such a diet - you feel nauseous and limit intake.

Buy from a reputable store. I know everyone that shops at Allegra is thrilled. I personally only buy from them.
I have had only positive experiences there (lkwd location).

Destination Guides And Trip Planning / Re: Lakewood NJ Master Thread

The Manhattan vicinity does seem like the best bet but parking there is probably difficult.

You can drive into Boro Park or Jersey City and take a train into the city. Its definitely a lot cheaper than parking in the city.

General Discussion / Re: Toaster buying guide

Basically 4 slice toasters don't fit a 9x13. 6 slice toasters usually do.

ThanksI didn't mean that I expect they'll let me get access to it. I meant is it possible that the first 1000 ppl to put it into their Waitlist get first chance to buy it once it becomes available.

Gilt insiders with a certain amount of points  (think its 500) have the option of shopping at 11:30 before the sales officially start at 12. So its possible that something will sell out before the sale officially opens.

Does anyone use Gilt frequently enough to know that if an item is in your Waitlist, you get first dibs on it?

If you have Gilt Insider Noir Status then you get Waitlist priority.

Does anyone have recommendations for child safety locks for kitchen cabinets that do not have drawer pulls?

and how much did you pay? :)

Was about $23 w/ free shipping. Was on sale, plus used redcard.
BTW Toys R Us has it at the same price.
